History

Established on January 6, 1978 by virtue of PD 1279 otherwise known as its Charter, Mariano Marcos State University was a merger of two growing state colleges in the province of Ilocos Norte: the Mariano Marcos Memorial College of Science and Technology (MMMCST) in Batac and the Northern Luzon State College (NLSC) in Laoag City. Also integrated were the tertiary level courses of the Ilocos Norte Agricultural College in Pasuquin and the Ilocos Norte College of Arts and Trades in Laoag. Even then, MMSU’s roots were anchored deep, its foundations strong and its beginnings proven historical turning points, as the predecessor institutions have existed as far back as the early 1900s. [edit]Founding MMMCST (1974) was founded as the Batac Farm School in 1906. It metamorphosed into the Batac Rural High School in 1918, the Ilocos Norte Institute of Technology in 1964 and MMMCST in 1974. The Currimao School of Fisheries, the Dingras National Agricultural School and the Ilocos Norte School for Craftsman in Paoay formed its satellite campuses. On the other hand, NLSC started as an experimental vacation school of the Philippine Normal School in 1917. As its enrolment grew and its offerings became upgraded, it was renamed the Ilocos Norte Normal School in 1952, the Northern Luzon Teachers College in 1963 and NLSC in 1976. On the establishment of the university in 1978, a master plan that incorporated environment–friendly land use and elegant architecture was executed, drawing expertise from national agencies and institutions. New academic units were created and program offerings were re-engineered in harmony with its vision and mission. Highly qualified faculty was recruited them to reputable institutions in the country and abroad. It became an active member of the International Association of Universities (IAU), the International Association of Institutions of Higher Learning (ASAIHL), and the Association of Technological Education in the ASEAN (ATEAN). The United States Information Service (USIS) through the Thomas Jefferson Cultural Center selected MMSU as seat of the American Studies Resource Center (ASRC) in Northern Luzon. These strong foundations were laid during the administration of Dr. Consuelo S. Blanco, the first president, whose leadership spanned from 1978 to 1983. The university is relatively young compared to other state universities in the Philippines. However, MMSU’s root anchored deep, its foundation is strong, and its beginnings all proven historical turning points as far back as the early 1900s. [edit]Academics
